Howdy, everyone. I'm afraid there's still no major updates on the horizon, but lately I've put some much needed work into my gallery system (which I've barely touched in 3 years). Once I get a UI for tag searching implemented (searching via CGI queries already works) I'll be moving on to finally adding a comment system. I'll be adding comments to my comic strips first, since it's easier, and then to the gallery later.
With the closing of 2016 I've been thinking a lot about career options and have made a final decision to stop working with computers. Obviously, given the lack of updates to my projects, I'm not much into them, especially since smart phones showed up. I think working in this new world full of cloud, UX, apps, and DRM is below me. Nothing in the tech industry is fun anymore. I do have some plans for some new hobbies which may involve art, but since there's no way to make money doing drawn comics, it's hard to justify working on this site [regularly] again. It's fun, but not anything viable. Occasionally comics might show up and I will be finishing the current storyline eventually, but I need to focus my time elsewhere.
I had done some work with voice recording a while back that had potential, so one of my latest crazy ideas is a puppet show with deadpan humor. Not neccessarily on YouTube, but at least something involving online video. As a hobby, it's worth a shot if I can get enough craft materials together to build my puppets (not to mention actual creative material). Seeing a “real-life” Waccoon rambling on about existence might be pretty funny. Now that he's middle aged with a kid and all, he's gotten a little more senile. At least, in a friendly, funny way.
The first Wacintosh Files compilation is now available from Jarlidium Press! Go buy!
